100 years of Kulusuk
- School Project 1 - East Greenland
On the path from Kulusuk village to the hotel and airport
are three circles of these red display stands. They
were erected in 2009 as a part of the 100th anniversary celebrations.
A teacher at Kulusuk school told me that an artist came over
from Denmark (Greenland is a part of Denmark) and worked with
the children for some time to prepare make the display.
As a tourist it was a surprise and it turned out a real
treat to see this art in place in the landscape that it came
from. The three circles represent Kulusuk past, present and
future, so 1909, 2009 and 2109.
This display stand has
a series of drawings of their families by 6/7 grade, one from
each of the class in a plastic wallet.
